Depending on where you are, this won't work.  Try WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2, 
which is the currently recommended 3 hop path.  (I personally use 
WIDE3-3 as my 3 hop path with success, but try the standard first!)

On the surface it sounds like you're OK other than the possible 
(probable) path problem.  Do you notice the APRS side of the radio 
displaying "ONAIR......", or notice a "MY POSITION" message that would 
indicate you're getting digipeated and your D700 heard its own report 
back?
